The Craiglands Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Ilkley
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from Ilkley up a steady slope. It is a lively looking old building and is attractive upon entry with a lovely staircase. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and decorated to a high standard with lively furniture. I actually said "wow" when I entered my bedroom door! The only criticism of the room was poor water pressure in the shower, but the water was lovely and hot. The food at buffet breakfast was good, but no hot vegetarian option to sausage or bacon. The evening meals offered a variety of meat, fish and veggie, all served hot and presented nicely. The service was a bit erratic but the friendly and helpful staff we adequate compensation. The bar area was small (not sure how it would seat everyone if busy) but lovely leather chairs and sofas. A bit pricey though. All in all a good quality hotel which I would recommend and use again if in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front or side have lovely views of the gardens.

I stayed here overnight with my partner in march as a gift we recieved at xmas. We were abit apprehensive because of the bad reviews but were pleasently surprised. Check in was quick and simple and our room was clean and very spacious. Yes the bathroom was outdated but it didnt bother us. It was clean and there was hot water. The 3 course meal in the evening was lovely and we had an enjoyable evening. The breakfast buffet in the morning was fine as well. Some thing for every one. Every member of staff we came across was polite and happy to help. However the bed we had was extremely uncomfortable and resulted in me getting very little sleep and having to sleep on the little sofa in the room. I ended up going home extremely tired and ruined our night away. However I'm guessing we were just unlucky its just a shame as everything else was so nice but left feeling disapointed and unrested. Unsure if we would visit again.

Stayed Thursday night on a deal.

Nice room, very clean, good view, only downside, not one painting on the walls so gave the
room a basic look.

The hotel is in a great position , with Ilkley only minutes walk down the hill. not sure about the 6 acres of gardens, mainly carpark & woods with no access.

As we were on a deal, the menu was small,with the starter & dessert excellent & the main was good.
I have to mention, that we overslept & we were 20 minutes over the time for breakfast, I dashed down stairs & must have spoken to one of the lady managers? & apologised & asked could they do something for us, she said that she would still take our order for breakfast. What truly excellent customer service this was. The only problem with the breakfast was I thought the sausage was "off", they did apologise & said they would do more for us, we declined & they said they would look into it. I removed 1* because of this.

All in all a pleasurable stay.

It was like going back 50 years! The hotel looks spooky from the outside and damp and dated on the inside! We checked in and got sent to our room (I had paid for an upgraded room), the room hadnt been cleaned, the bed had been slept in and the bathroom was disgusting! We went back to see the manager, who instead of trying to make it right just offered our money back! No apology or anything!! So here I was birthday weekend with nowhere to stay!! We booked the Coniston hotel 8 miles away which was amazing!!!

We got married at Craiglands on 5th April 2014 and were absolutely delighted with every aspect of the day. Nicky, the events co-ordinator helped plan our big day and she was fantastic, really helpful and very organised, ensuring that everything was planned to perfection. The food was excellent and this was commented on by many of the guests. I stayed over the night before and got ready in one of the big family rooms which was an impressive size as there were 6 of us in there getting ready plus 2 hairdressers and the photographer and we still had enough room. Attention to detail was given to everything to ensure that we had the perfect day - and we did. We would absolutely recommend the Craiglands as a wedding venue.

We stayed on the 21st of April for one night on a groupon dinner, bed and breakfast deal. We were allocated room 148 which was a massive room and very comfortable. The dinner was fantastic we both had brie and chorizo salad , steak ( 3 pounds extra surcharge ) and a sticky toffee pudding desert, everything was well presented and the service from Richard was quirky and attentive. The breakfast the following morning was one of the best I have ever had. Whoever did the previous review saying the sausages were cheap needs their heads and taste buds testing as this is nonsense. The sausages and bacon at breakfast were first class ! All in all a great stay and will recommend and go back.
